Time for a little catch up and a Few Pictures!

I see it is time I got off my oversized rear end and get to posting again. I have some catching up to do but first, I have to show you Mail Call today!!! I'm so excited!!!! I just can't believe that all of this came from the wonderful Ann, my swap partner in Darci's swap. I know at this point that Ann is thinking I've forgotten her, but I really haven't! You will see my dearest Ann. Ok, I have to get some pictures of ALL the lovelies that I've received. I'm just so excited to break into each and every little thing! But I'll show the pictures first!
A book about Australia, a key chain from there, CANDY--better yet CHOCOLATE!! and Cadbury chocolate too!-a pin cushion that is just the right size for ALL the pins I use!-buttons, embroidery thread, and OMG beautiful fabric!!! not to mention the oh sew sweet card from Ann.

Is this not the most beautiful batch of stuff from a beautiful lady? I can't tell you how much I LOVE this fabric pallette! I think my new granddaughter is going to like purple!! Especially since it is her daddy's favorite color! LOL I'll be sure to show you what all I make with it!

OK catch up: you remember when I put the ruffle on the jeans? I did two more pair of pants for Holly, one of the most precious children around--although I consider most children that way, but she is just too cute on top of being precious.
These are the other two I lengthened for her.

And this is the beautiful Holly in her newly made old jeans!

Now let's see, is there anything else artsy/crafty that I've been working on? Well, yes, but of course I don't have pictures of them! LOL I do have pictures of a solar system mobile we've been working on. The pictures are kind of hard to really see the mobile well; but that doesn't usually stop me from showing pictures! LOL

I'll try to remember to get pictures of the other things we've been working on as well. Won't promise I'll remember though!
But now that I have had my evening of Show-N-Tell, I'm heading to bed.

I'm so glad you liked everything Shelley - I had so much fun putting it together! Smarties are like M & Ms but the colour comes off on your fingers (which was always part of the fun - eating them before that happened)

The pincushion was a hoot because I didn't realise it would be that big! It looked small in the picture. Now you can have a spring bloom every day.

Enjoy your goddies - it's been great swapping with you!

Happy Stitching...Ann :)

P.S. I just love the frilled jeans

Those ruffle jeans are TOO cute! I'll have to try that. My daughter still fits in her jeans, but she's getting taller, so they're more like capris. This would solve the length problem. Fun.

Love all that 'stuff' you got! And the pants for the cute girl are very fancy.
Have a lovely week (O:

Those are great little-bit-longer pants.
